Abstract:

Mushroom is a cash crop grown worldwide on small as well as commercial scale for domestic consumption and export. It is a rich source of proteins, minerals and vitamins with low calorie value with no cholesterol. It is well known alternate source of good quality protein which has higher concentration of amino acid viz., tryptophan and lysine in comparison to vegetable protein. The present investigation was carried out to know the nutritional and physiological along with growth and biomass of H. ulmarius. Among the tested media potato dextrose agar medium was found most suitable medium for the growth (89.00mm) and biomass (fresh mycelium weight: 13.93gm and dry mycelium weight 0.57gm) of H. ulmarius. Optimum temperature required 26°C was most suitable. Maximum relative humidity for radial growth was observed at 75% relative humidity. Complete darkness or zero hrs light was excellent for mycelial growth and biomass of H. ulmarius. Maximum growth of H. ulmarius was obtained at pH 8.0 on potato dextrose agar medium.
